A Bottle Or Two
A lovely nose that blend citrus, lime blossom and apricot notes with machine oil notes. In the mouth this is quite rich yet very acid driven and dry. It's starts of with a rather grapefruity attack that is cut by assertive and mouthwatering mineral ton...

Intensely aromatic showing a bit of toffee, big bold black fruit, spicy notes, bit of sage, sweet black fruit that shows some emerging complexity. Open, juicy, big and pure on the palate, this is packed with black cherry, black berry fruit in a fairly ...

I had a glass or two of this last night and must say WOW. A little meat on the nose, it was incredibly smooth in the mouth. It had a nice plum flavor. This was such a well rounded wine I will probably order more if they don't run out. The good news...

I thought on the first sip on New Years Day, 2011, I was drinking hard cider and didn't like it much, but Mary loved it. So the next day when we finished the bottle while unChristmasing the house, I came around some to her way of thinking. While we bot...

I received a complimentary bottle of this when I was staying at the Hotel Lucia in Portland, I remember it being such a good wine, I ordered a second. Not that same night. I think they went to twist cap the next year or two after the 2002 when I found ...

For my money if you can find a blend containing a drop or two of Syrah and Carmenere with Cab. Sauv. and/or Merlot for less than $20. BUY IT. This was a very good bottle of vino. Thank you, Chile. If only I could afford to visit. 3/5/15...I believe win...

Fantastic superieur with an equally impressive price. I bought this bottle to drink now but would do good with some age. I will probably buy another bottle or two to age. Young Bordeaux aroma of red fruits (cherry and raspberry) and slight touch of tob...

This is a fun easy wine and I try to have a bottle or two around for when I have guests over. Those that do not traditionally like red wine can enjoy this with a meal. Good full flavor in the mouth an excellent wine with lots of different types of me...

A lovely Barbaresco with solid acidity and a cool, composed character featuring crisp cherry, soil and dried floral aromatics. the wine is medium bodied and fairly elegant with small but precise tannins and a taut backend that leads to a long, sneaky f...

Hi all, new around here. I'm rapidly approaching a milestone and will want to celebrate with a nice bottle. Not looking for something to cellar, but rather something to enjoy now.I've considered Barolo and Brunello, to Bordeaux and Burgundy. I'd like something with some age on it, and some muscle, but with nice finesse. Would like to keep it... Read More
Hi! I am new here and wanted to get your opinions on a wine for Thanksgiving dinner. I will need several bottles of wine to go with the traditional Thanksgiving dinner of oven baked Turkey, sides, etc. Please let me know your recommendations! Read More
I don't know why I started thinking of this today, but I had to write a post about it to and would LOVE some Snooth feedback! The whole post is here: http://www.kronickwino.com/2009/11/calorie-nutrition-labels-for-wine-future-possibility/But the question stands as - why dont wine bottles have caloric / nutritional information?I know this informa...

So a question in one of these threads, or perhaps in a comments thread on one of my articles got me thinking about my favorite varietal wines.First off I will have to group my answer in two parts, noble wines and not noble wines. I am stealing the phrase noble from the wine geek vernacular but as a title it works just fine.So the noble grapes ar... Read More
THE BASIC MATERIAL – POTTERY Although the original object was to write about sweet wine, since many early wines were likely to have been sweet, some notes on wine in general seemed appropriate. Similarly, because wine has for so long been an important commercial item, and because the packaging directly affects the product itself, some notes on p... Read More
I know a good majority of Ports are from grapes like Zin, Cab, Grand Noir, muscat, etc, but what of some of these "newer wines" that are taking stage in the recent decades? Grapes with heavy heat, jam, fruit, and dark spices and earth. Are there are ports out there that utilize Malbec, Carmenere, etc? I think something like these wines, fortif... Read More
I was messing around on Domaine547, somehow stumbled onto Snooth, and dove right in. Long time beer/cocktail drinker, but wine manages to slip in now and then. Just wanted to say hi to everyone, but instead of the usual "hi I'm new/welcome newbie" thread, I thought any repliers should also toss in their favorite red wine, and maybe a little tidb...

Has anyone had anything of good quality from Argentina that isn't a malbec or malbec blend?Everytime I buy a cabernet or a shiraz they seem to be way way over oaked with very funky finishesI tried a Luigi Bosca Pinot Noir and my palate was tired after a glass and a halfAny recommendations?Perhaps I should try the bonardascheers Read More
Fifth Element is a tad thin, hot and lacking some concentration on entry. The oak and tight tannins are not quite in balance even with the good fruit (perhaps a year or two of additional bottle-aging will correct this). The mid-palate is also somewhat hollow - a perennial problem with many Canadian red wines in most vintages. However, none of... Read More
From another thread:GregT: " Oh it makes my ears bleed. I need to go and drink a bottle of Sang de Cailloux"Dmcker: "So what's the 'terroir' for the blood of stones? Great naming for a domaine. Too bad you can't really get away with that type of name in English. Guess we have to suffice with 'Big House' or 'Suckfizzle' or '10 Minutes by Tractor'... Read More
